When Mojo Ruiz de Luzuriaga, known as Mo’Ju (formerly Mojo Juju) launched her album Native Tongue in 2018, it commanded the attention of a nation, collecting 24 award nominations, and winning Best Song and Best Album at the National Indigenous Music Awards. Though seemingly having dropped fully formed from the sky, she had been plugging away in the industry for years and this statement was both culminative and revealing: a deep exploration of her Indigenous and Filipino identity and how this has shaped her.
Mo’ju has finally arrived and, as she says, watch out; “I came here to kick ass and chew gum. And I’m all outta gum.” She has won best live act at the NIMAs two years running, so don’t miss this gig.
